Supermoons can be a spectacle of color, light, and intrigue because when these occur it's when the moon's path passes closest to the earth.
If you want to see the “Sturgeon Supermoon” in all its colorful glory you'll want to look for it to rise in the southeastern sky.
August’s full Moon will appear on the night of Thursday, August 11, reaching peak illumination at 8:36 P.M. Central Time.
So why is it called the “Sturgeon Moon?”
According to the Old Farmers Almanac, “August’s full Moon was traditionally called the Sturgeon Moon because the giant sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught during this part of summer.”
